Not true. This is true only of FTP users that have mailboxes. The only way I know to find out if an FTP user has a mailbox is to look for its name under Passwords, Mailboxes.

Not true. Mail-only users / mailboxes may have alphanumeric names just like FTP users. To create a mail-only users / mailboxes with an alphanumeric name, create an FTP "user" of that name, then delete the "user" without deleting the mailbox.
